Listen To Him
I am musing on the Transfiguration this morning. If you are not familiar with it, it is recorded in Matthew 17:1-13.
Summary: Jesus took Peter, James and John with Him up a mountain. Right before their eyes Jesus was transfigured into a glorious form and then Moses (representing the law) and Elijah (the prophets) appeared! At once the brightest light they had ever seen overshadowed them and God Himself spoke "...saying “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Listen to him!” Matthew 17:15. The disciples fell into a trance! When they woke up, only Jesus remained! ONLY JESUS REMAINED.
The Transfiguration confirms that Jesus is the center of everything. All paths lead to Jesus and He is the only one who matters. God wants us to listen to Jesus only.
All the law and the words of the prophets culminate in Jesus and indeed He is the only way to God! God wanted the disciples who would pioneer the church to have a full understanding of who Jesus was and still is!
If we want to live a fulfilling life here on earth and in eternity then we must also listen to the words of Jesus and let His teachings take precedence in our lives and guide us! We must look to Him, the author and finisher of our faith and allow Him to rule in our lives!
His words are not hidden from us, they are contained in the Bible and we must do well to listen (read) and obey too.
How important are the words of Jesus in your life? Do you need to make any changes in your life to give Jesus' words more prominence? Only Jesus matters! Listen to Him!
